Surya Ramkumar

Hello, I am Surya Ramkumar.

I am a writer. Through writing, I bring together various strands of my life.

I am a life-long learner and explorer. Over the course of my life so far, I have lived in 8 different countries and travelled to many more, and I play many roles in life, all of which allow me to see and write through different lenses and perspectives. I write as a woman, friend, wife, daughter and mother. Mostly, I write as a human being in an increasingly complex, tech-augmented world.

I write as someone who works at the the intersection of technology and business. I am a senior director at Microsoft and serve as a board member at ICRW in the Netherlands. My career has also included roles at McKinsey & Company, Citigroup and Accenture. My work spans strategy, innovation, future of work, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and more. You can find more about my professional bio here.

My mission as a writer is to bring clarity and understanding of our complex world in a way that makes it accessible to more people. I hope that it inspires positive thought and action. I hope that it helps you orient and navigate our world with more confidence, empathy and grace.
